This Christmas was one of great stress and a general feeling underacheivement for me. I was not well organized and didn't have a 'game plan' so-to-speak. Thus, I was under-prepared and kinda unsatisified with how things went. Everything from Thanksgiving on felt like I was rushing and like there was not enough time to complete everything. Then with the holiday being on a weekend day, that made it all so much more hectic to not have one last weekend before to complete everything. I swear I seriously thought about heading out xmas eve at 7 p.m. to get to Target to grab just a few more things before they closed at 9. Like more presents was going to make it all better.....
The kids seemed to be pretty happy with everything so this feeling that I have is something that I have given to myself. I hope I can read this post when October rolls around next year to remind me to start planning and buying and making lists as early as possible.
As usual, I am very glad that this hectic season is over with. And so very glad that I don't have to listen to Christmas music for a whole 335 days! yay! I am looking forward to the New Year and all that comes with it. 2012 is going to be a good one! I just know it!
How are you doing with exercise during the holiday season?
High on xmas or glad it's over with?
